INVITATION FOR PARTNERSHIP
I Am Andrew Tan, Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of Harvest Global Investments Limited, Hong Kong In the course of reviewing the audit report for the year ending 31st December, 2014 presented to me to sign before presenting to the Board of Director, the Accountant and I discovered a floating fund in a dormant account opened in 2002 in favour of a foreigner, who we discovered died in 2009. Every effort made to track any member of his family failed. We are making contacts with you to stand as his Next of Kin since both of you share the same last name.
Our intention is to transfer the sum in the aforementioned account to a safe account overseas. We therefore propose that you partner with us by providing the account that will serve the purpose of receiving this fund. For your partnership in this venture, we are ready to part with a good percentage of the entire funds as your share. After going through the deceased records and files, we discovered that No one has operated this account since 2009
He died without any known heir; hence the money has been floating. No one knows about this account and there was no known beneficiary or next of kin.If we do not remit this money urgently, it would be forfeited and subsequently converted to company's funds or share between investors. This money can be approved to you legally if all the necessary documentary approvals are secured in your name. You would be required to show some proof as the next of kin, which we will provide to you with and guide you on how to make your application of claims legally in accordance to the inheritance claim policy of the company and that of the Hong Kong.
-Please respond by sending your telephone and fax number. As soon as I hear from you, I will send you detailed information on the transaction and also give you a call. With your ability to follow our instructions, the entire process can be concluded in 14 working days. I look forward to your prompt response.
